Please ponder this if you're thinking of "rejecting Jesus" because the Jewish counter-missionary rabbis have hoodwinked you into believing they are better and smarter, and know more than those who have accepted Yeshua as the Jewish Messiah:
They kind of remind me of Eve, who, in a way, was the first "rabbi" because she invented the first "fence". Remember, in Genesis, Adam is told not to EAT the forbidden fruit, 'for if you do, you shall surely die" (Genesis 2:15) Surely Adam passed this on to Eve at some point? But when relating the command - the Torah if you will - to the serpent (Genesis 3:2), what does she say?
She says she should not TOUCH OR EAT the fruit, lest she die. Her "fence" (like all "fences" that humans pass along) becomes part of her normal understanding of the command.
As a result, when she does touch the fruit and DOESN'T die, the serpent can easily convince her that the fruit is safe! But YHWH never said not to touch the fruit, so touching means nothing, and because she broke HIS command by eating it, guess what? She got evicted from the Garden and ultimately died!
The rabbis do this a lot too. That's why Jews aren't allowed to use the Name YHWH gave to Moshe
In another instance, the rabbis looked at passages in Leviticus 24 and Exodus 22 that contain stern warnings about CURSING in the name of God, and reasoned that if you don't SPEAK the name at all, then you can't CURSE in it.
And then, because, in order to avoid SPEAKING the Name they had to SUBSTITUTE the Name, and substituting the Name is a violation of the THIRD COMMANDMENT. What most view as, "don't take the Name in VAIN" is actually SHAV, and SHAV means, "to substitute, make desolate, drain of power".
So in trying to "protect" one commandment, they violated another equally important one. Is it any wonder then that Messiah was so critical of Oral Law (You have heard that it was SAID, but I SAY to you)?
YHWH's NAME was never "God" or "ADONAI" or anything else; those were simply TITLES....
We are then told in Exodus that He provided His Name to Moses:
Exodus 3: And Mosheh said to Elohim, "See, when I come to the children of Yisra'el and say to them, 'The Elohim of your fathers has sent me to you,' and they say to me, 'What is His Name?' what shall I say to them?" 14 And Elohim said to Mosheh, "I am that which I am." And He said, "Thus you shall say to the children of Yisra'el, 'I am has sent me to you.'" (ISR)
NOTE: The Hebrew text reads: ’eyeh ’asher ’eyeh, the word ’eyeh being derived from hayah which means to be, to exist, but the Aramaic text here in v. 14 reads: ayah ashar ayah. This is not His Name, but it is an explanation that leads up to the revelation of His Name in v. 15, namely: יהוה
Exodus 3:15 And Elohim said further to Mosheh, "Thus you are to say to the children of Yisra'el, יהוה Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Abraham, the Elohim of Yitsh'aq, and the Elohim of Ya'aqob, has sent me to you. This is My Name forever, and this is My remembrance to all generations.' (ISR)
The English transliteration of the Hebrew letters "Yud-Hey-Vav-Hey" is YHWH. Thus, God Himself revealed His Name to us, and man has had access to it all along; but, ironically, traditional Jews refuse to utter his Name for fear of mispronouncing it or misspelling it, etc.; while, on the other hand, you'll never hear the Father's Name mentioned in most Christian churches as they are all concentrating on "Jesus" whom they erroneously believe came to replace the Father and abolish all his original Divine instructions/ teachings (Torah)....
Oh, by the way, there are also 300 separate commands to shout, laud, praise, sing, play on instruments IN THE NAME OF YAHWEH.
